10. Paid Body Doubles to Go to Prison For You
Here in the United States, one of the only ways to stop a billionaire from misbehaving is to get him in trouble with the law. Heck, even Al Capone was taken down for tax evasion. But in China, millionaires can get away with serving their prison sentence by hiring someone to do it for them. These body doubles need to at least closely resemble the real person, in order for this to work.
Since there is such a wide gap between China’s rich and poor, there are a lot of people struggling to make ends meet. This is why some men agree to do this in order to have their family provided for the rest of their lives. Or, they might receive a large sum of money when they have completed their jail sentence. Meanwhile, the millionaire needs to keep a low profile, and stay out of the press. But at least they are free, and enjoying the comforts of home.
